Research Interests

The members of the ORFEO-CINQA team have vide experience in the study of processes involving organotransition metal complexes, from synthesis to catalysis or to the study of fundamental reaction mechanisms. Currently they are interested in applying their expertise to the following research lines:

  1. Hydrogen: production, storage and transport.
  2. Functionalization and transformation of hydrocarbons.
  3. Fixation and use of CO2.
  4. Generation of biofunctional structures based on transition metals.
  5. Generation of new functional materials based on macromolecules and composites.
